Local News

The Huffington Post asks Kentucky readers to submit local photos this week: 

Foreclosure filings are up more than 10 percent in Jefferson County, Ky., from this time last year. And there are so many abandoned houses in Louisville that the state’s attorney general recently earmarked more than $3 million to deal with the glut of vacant property.

With the vice presidential debate taking place in Danville this Thursday, we want to hear from you–HuffPost readers who live in the Bluegrass State–about what things are really like in your neighborhood. Show us what the housing market is like in your town. Show us how the local economy is doing.

Readers are encouraged to submit “photos of the real Kentucky” for the site’s lead-up coverage in to tomorrow’s Vice Presidential Debate in Danville. Contributors can post photos to HuffPo FirstHand (tagged #firsthand and #thisisKY) or email to firsthand@huffingtonpost.com.
